Popular rebellion in Ecuador- dispatch from the streets

Boston, 21.04.2005 02:01

CUENCA, ECUADOR – By a unanimous vote Ecuador's lawmakers removed President Lucio Gutierrez from office Wednesday and replaced him with Vice President Alfredo Palacio, following days of intensifying street protests. While the focus of media attention has been on the capital city of Quito, the southern city of Cuenca has been in open rebellion against its former president for the past week. The discontent had been simmering for some time but in the weeks and days before the ouster of Gutierrez it reached a boiling point. Daily, students manned street blockades and fought pitched battles with police over control of the streets while across town the main park overflowed every night with a diverse array of people who had come to protest the president and government.



Ecuador: Another President Falls

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.04.2005 02:00

President Lucio Gutierrez of Ecuador is holed up in the Quito airport, trying to flee the country. Meanwhile, the airport is surrounded by the military, who have been ordered by the new authorities to arrest Lucio and not allow him to leave the country.

Lucio, who was elected with the support of Ecuador's indigenous population, but subsequently turned his back on them, has been forced out after a week of massive protests. Today the Congress voted to oust him, while the military withdrew their support and the chief of police resigned. So, as the protests continued, Lucio took off for the airport to try to get out. His Vice President, who distanced himself from Lucio months ago, has taken over.

Julio Garcia, a photographer who documented indigenous movements in Ecuador for 30 years, was killed in the midst of street protests near the presidential palace. Garcia, a 70-year old Chilean news photographer, died of a heart attack after being gassed by police, according to Red Cross and hospital officials.

Berkeley's War on Squatters, Homeless, and the Poor

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.04.2005 02:00

Steve DeCaprio moved into his house on March 13, 2004. After a 3-year search, he found a house in the same neighborhood as many of his friends. The house had not been occupied in some 15 years, so he invoked "occupancy" under Acquisition of Property California Civil Codes Sections 1000-1006 and moved in. He has been embroiled in a fierce battle with the police ever since. Steve's fight for his house can be seen as an example of battles against gentrification in his area of the East Bay.

On Friday, April 22nd, a judge in a federal court will decide about a motion from the city of Berkeley for summary judgement against Steve DeCaprio. Steve, in turn, has moved for a preliminary injunction against Berkeley, as well as summary judgement (the court would then judge based on what has been submitted, without any further proceedings). The hearing will take place in Courtroom 2 at 10am, in the Federal Courthouse in Oakland, which is located at 1301 Clay Street, 94612.

Direct Action Against Military Recruiters at UCB

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.04.2005 02:00

Recently, the Associated Students at the University of California (ASUC) passed a resolution that argued that military recruiters (who refuse to recruit gays and lesbians) violate the University of California's anti-discrimination policy and therefore should not be allowed access to ASUC facilities (SB 107). Still, military recruiters have announced their intention to show up at the April 21st Career Fair in the MLK student union. A protest is planned for Thursday morning. Students are gathering at 10:30am near the Fountain on Sproul Plaza .

Counter Recruitment has become a national issue. Between these efforts and widespread anger about the war, all branches of the United States Military have seen drastic drops in their recruitment rates. In February, the Army missed its recruiting goal for the first time in nearly five years, and it missed its March goal by 32 percent. The Army Reserve is 10 percent behind their year-to-date recruiting target and the National Guard is 26 percent short, while the need for soldiers is on the rise. Berkeley Stop the War Coalition has been working to bring the Counter Recruitment movement to UC Berkeley's campus.

Re-Emergence of Discredited Ilisu Dam Project

Ireland, 21.04.2005 00:32

Turkish Dams Violate EU Standards and Human Rights Update on plans for large dams in southeast Turkey. New report published by NUI Galway and the Kurdish Human Rights Centre. From the National University of Ireland, Galway and the Kurdish Human Rights Project, London: Plans for large dams in southeast Turkey including the discredited Ilisu dam project may yet go ahead in spite of adverse impacts on cultural and environmental rights, according to a new report by the National University of Ireland, Galway and the Kurdish Human Rights Project. The report provides new evidence from hydroelectric dam projects planned for the Munzur, Tigris and Greater Zap rivers. The study, a report of a fact-finding mission to the region carried out by Maggie Ronayne, Lecturer in Archaeology at the National University of Ireland, Galway, demonstrates how archaeology in particular supports the case of thousands of villagers adversely affected by these projects, most of whom do not appear to have been consulted at all about the dams and many of whom want to return to reservoir areas, having already been displaced by the recent conflict in the region.... The overwhelming response in particular from women and their organisations is one of opposition to the negative impact on them and those in their care; yet women have been the least consulted sector. The reservoirs would submerge evidence for hundreds and potentially thousands of ancient sites of international importance, including evidence of our earliest origins as a species, the beginnings of agriculture, and the remains of empires including those of Rome and Assyria. The heritage of Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians and others from the last few hundred years and holy places from several traditions within the Muslim and Christian faiths, many still used in religious practices today and some dating from over 1000 years ago, will go under the reservoir waters. According to report author Maggie Ronayne: 'The GAP development project of which these dams are part is destroying a heritage which belongs to the whole of humanity and contravenes the most basic professional standards. Governments and companies involved with these projects are ignoring its serious implications: the destruction of such diverse cultural and religious heritage in a State with a history of severe cultural repression. Turkey's progress on cultural rights for the Kurds and others has been an object of scrutiny in recent years; the EU must consider cultural destruction on this scale in that context.' One of the major findings of the report is that there is a new consortium of companies coming together to build the discredited Ilisu Dam which would displace up to 78,000 mostly Kurdish people, and would also potentially cut off downstream flows of water to Syria and Iraq. The ancient town of Hasankeyf, culturally important to many Kurdish people and of international archaeological significance, will not be saved by new plans to build the dam despite the promises of the Turkish prime minister and the would-be dam builders. In any case, the cultural impacts of Ilisu are much greater than this one very important town. From 2000 to 2002, campaigners, human rights and environmental groups and affected communities successfully exposed fundamental flaws in project documents and plans for Ilisu, which contributed to the collapse of the last consortium of companies planning to build it. But the basis for the project this time remains essentially the same. Kerim Yildiz, Executive Director of the Kurdish Human Rights Project commented: 'It seems that the Turkish State has not learned the lessons of Ilisu: the report finds that a range of international laws and standards are not being adhered to. EU standards in particular are met by none of the projects. The study also shows that while there have been some improvements and legal reforms, torture remains an administrative practice of the State. If this is the climate in which people are to be consulted about the dams, then we can only conclude that any fair outcome for the public appears most unlikely. The GAP development project examined in this study raises serious questions regarding Turkey's process of accession to the EU.'

Breaking News from The Student Walk Out

San Diego, 21.04.2005 00:24

About 350 students held a rally at City College on April 20th to protest the proposed budget cuts being put forth by the Governor. After the rally, they held a spirited, loud march wiht drums, noisemakers and booming music through downtown to the State Department building where the Governor's office is. After rallying at the State Department building, the group began to march back. Present were supportive faculty members, organizers, college students and high school students from SDSU, UCSD, City College, Miramar College, Southwest College, SD High and more.

A breakaway march of about 50-75 people split off from the main group, outside of the lines of motorcycle cops and horse cops in riot gear. After an intense confrontation where the police pushed people, hit them with their motorcycles and bicycles, threatened them with batons and brought out a visciously marking police dog, the breakaway still refused to return to the main group. Although they tried to move their march to the sidewalk, the police still refused to let them go and tried to negotiate the route. After the students refused negotiations, the police finally gave up and let the march continue on the sidewalk back to city college. Numerous attempts were made to retake the streets, but the police used their horses to push people back onto the street.

New privacy tool tolls the birth of cypherspace

Boston, 20.04.2005 23:01

Information is power. Pervasive access to the internet in libraries, schools, homes, and cafés has put a great deal of power into the hands of the people. Governments are just beginning to react to this and are reacting much as they did to the invention of the printing press, with a heavy and intrusive hand. In recent cases the government has shown a pattern of intimidating those who would provide access to this new high-tech soap box. A new anonymity program, TOR, provides some help for both users and service providers.

Irlam, April 8th. Workers arriving at the Caterpillar - Perkins site in Greater Manchester were surprised, first by a 30 foot yellow banner with an acrylic image of a Palestinian, head in hands, whose house is being demolished by a Cat bulldozer while an Israeli soldier stands guard.

The banner flew from a mound of grass along the private road to the security gate, the only entrance this morning. Management had hunkered down on red alert with police and dogs on site since 2 a.m. expecting an invasion under cover of darkness, for some reason.

Berkeley's War on Squatters, Homeless, and the Poor

San Francisco Bay Area, 20.04.2005 08:21

Steve DeCaprio moved into his house on March 13, 2004. He had been looking for a house of his own for at least 3 years. He found a house in the same neighborhood as many of his friends- it had not been occupied in some 15 years. Steve invoked "occupancy" under Acquisition of Property California Civil Codes Sections 1000-1006 and moved in. He has been embroiled in a fierce battle with the police ever since. Steve's fight for his house can be seen as an example of battles against gentrification in his area of the East Bay.

Steve's attempts to fix up the house have been stymied by multiple visits from the police. It is somewhat unclear who exactly is calling the police whenever Steve is there, but things have progressed to a point where Steve is not allowed to go within 100 yards of the house, in spite of the fact that many of his belongings are inside. An out-of-town relative of a former owner who had not expressed interest in the property in over 15 years has begun to fight for the title to the property. Steve has attended 19 hearings- both court and commission hearings as part of his struggle to own his home. The fight for the house is being waged in federal, appellate, and criminal courts, as well as at police commission meetings. Steve is representing himself in court and in dealings with the police, with some advice from attorneys and paralegals. Read more about Steve's case

On Friday, April 22nd, a judge in a federal court will decide about a motion from the city of Berkeley for summary judgement against Steve DeCaprio. Steve, in turn, has moved for a preliminary injunction against Berkeley, as well as summary judgement (the court would then judge based on what has been submitted, without any further proceedings). The hearing will take place in Courtroom 2 at 10am, in the Federal Courthouse in Oakland, which is located at 1301 Clay Street, 94612. Judge Claudia Wilkins will be presiding. She is the judge who ruled against the City of Oakland and the FBI in the Judi Bari case.

UCSC's Vice-Chancellor of Communications lies about police brutality at TUSC

Santa Cruz, CA, 20.04.2005 04:02

UCSC Vice-Chancellor of Communications lies to the media about police brutality at Tent University.

This is a copy of the email that has already been sent to Liz Irwin (emirwin@ucsc.edu)


Hi Elizabeth,

My name is Max Glick and I am an undergraduate student at UCSC. I am writing to inform you that your name will be included with press releases and flyers that will be posted throughout campus and the community tomorrow, Wednesday April 20. You were quoted giving the following statement to the KSBW news crew:

"'No, no, there were no batons, there were no Tasers. Someone said there was a Taser (gun) used. No, there was no force of that sort,' UC Santa Cruz spokeswoman Elizabeth Irwin said."

I was personally batoned by a cop in my stomach as were several other students. We have pictures of bruises to prove it. Also, we were not locked down in the tent. We were peaceful bystanders who happened to be standing in the path of riot police. They did not ask us to move, they simply started attacking students with batons. We have documented these attacks with several photos and videos and everything will be online within the next 24 hours.

New Pope bad news for liberal Catholicism

Portland, 19.04.2005 22:21

The selection of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as the new Pope is bad news for the liberal currents within global Catholicism. Unless Benedict XVI (as Ratzinger has named himself as Pope) executes a 360 degree turn from his past, those who are developing and practicing so-called "dissident" movements within the Church will find little-to-no traction for official support or recognition from the Vatican.

Especially unsupported, in all likelihood, will be Liberation Theology. This is disappointing, since Liberation Theology is a philosophy that is action-oriented in its advocacy of the poor and its opposition to Capitalism, and which could inspire admiration not only among non-Catholics but even non-Christians (to say nothing of its many Catholic adherents).

Despite the frequent slurs common on this website and within Left circles in general, the world's billion-plus "Christians" cannot be painted with a broad brush as univerally close-minded, conservative, and authoritarian. In the Catholic spectrum, Liberation Theology offers a radical political analysis and prescribes a life based on fundamental change of The System and The Self. Unfortunately, Ratzinger's record reveals his contempt for such concepts.

Will this mark a significant change in the protection of species within the forest? Some local campaigners think not.

"Sounds a bit arty" sez Wag, "Can you bring yer own coke 'n' crisps?" br> Short Films "Lucky Dip"/Best of VideoActive: This Saturday at Filmbase, Curved Street, Dublin From the Convergence Website: "Family, home, school, work, neighbourhood, town, city and country - our lives are filled with communities of one sort or another. These are the building blocks of our society. Doesn't it make sense that healthy communities lead to healthy societies? For the inaugural festival of 2005, Sustainable Ireland is proud to present Convergence Seven - Building Healthy Communities : A challenging programme of events designed to educate and expand our understanding of community, and what it means to build healthy, sustainable environments. Opening with a keynote lecture by Swedish social planner and economist Torbjorn Lahti, and continuing over a four-day festival, attendees can choose from over 30 lectures, conferences, workshops, films, exhibitions, discussions and initiatives." Indymedia Ireland/Convergence/Filmbase Present A Day of Film Screenings: As part of the Convergence Festival, Indymedia & Sustainable Ireland have teamed up with the recently opened Filmbase on Curved Street (the old Arthouse, opposite the Temple Bar Music Centre) to bring you a day of free short films from around the World, plus screenings of three of the feature documentaries from last November's "Videoactive" Film Festival. Last November a new radical documentary film festival was held in the Samuel Beckett Centre of Trinity College Dublin. This was co-organised by the Cultivate Centre and Indymedia Ireland. The festival showcased a series of feature length politically committed documentaries from around the planet. A complete programme of the screenings is available here. In November this year Indymedia, Cultivate and Film Base will host another 'Documentaries from the Edge' film festival. The three films being screened this Saturday are listed below. Admission to each film is only 5 euro: 10.00am - 12.00pm Outfoxed: Rupert Murdock's War on Journalism. "Outfoxed" examines how media empires, led by Rupert Murdoch's Fox News, have been running a "race to the bottom" in television news. This film provides an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public's right to know. The film explores Murdoch's burgeoning kingdom and the impact on society when a broad swath of media is controlled by one person. This documentary also reveals the secrets of Former Fox news producers, reporters, bookers and writers who expose what it's like to work for Fox News. These former Fox employees talk about how they were forced to push a "right-wing" point of view or risk their jobs. Produced and directed by Robert Greenwald. (77 mins) Carolina Productions, 2004 http://www.outfoxed.org 12.30pm - 2.30pm The End of Suburbia: The End of Suburbia points out that the rise of the suburbs was made possible by abundant and cheap oil. It allowed for the creation of a system of habitation where millions of people can live many miles away from where they work and where they shop for food and necessities. And there is no other form of living that requires more energy in order to function than suburbia. But the voracious and expanding energy needs of our industrial society, our insane consumer culture, and the affluent suburban lifestyles are brushing up against the disturbing reality of finite energy resources. The End of Suburbia makes clear that the effects of energy depletion go way beyond paying more at the pump. (78 Mins) Electric Wallpaper, 2004 http://www.endofsuburbia.com 3.00pm - 5.00pm Weapons of Mass Deception There were two wars going on in Iraq - one was fought with armies of soldiers, bombs and a fearsome military force. The other was fought alongside it with cameras, satellites, armies of journalists and propaganda techniques. One war was rationalized as an effort to find and disarm WMDs - Weapons of Mass Destruction; the other was carried out by even more powerful WMDs, Weapons of Mass Deception. The TV networks in America considered their non-stop coverage their finest hour, pointing to the use of embedded journalists and new technologies that permitted viewers to see a war up close for the first time. WMD is a 100 minute non-fiction film, explores this story with the findings of a gutsy, media insider-turned-outsider, former network journalist, Danny Schechter, who is one of America's most prolific media critics. Schechter says he "self-embedded" himself in his living room to monitor media coverage, by fastidiously tracking the TV coverage on a daily basis. (100 Mins) Mediachannel 2004 http://www.wmdthefilm.com Upstairs in Filmbase, Indymedia Ireland will be curating a day-long session of independent short films from across the world.

5/12: Screening of &quot;Speak Out: I Had an Abortion&quot;

San Francisco Bay Area, 19.04.2005 20:25

“Speak Out: I had an abortion," a documentary by Jennifer Baumgardner and Gillian Aldrich, will be screened on May 12th from 7-9pm at 777 Valencia, between 19th and 20th at New College of California. This documentary features women speaking candidly about their experiences with abortion. “Speak Out” showcases the voices of the first generation of women whose reproductive rights were recognized and safeguarded by the US. This film was made as part of the larger "I had an abortion" campaign, which Jennifer started last year in response to what she sees as the attempt by the right to foist a false consciousness of regret, terror and sadness on women who have had abortions. "Speak Out: I had an abortion" gives voice to the truth that each woman’s unique experience with abortion can be supported and respected.

Elizabeth Creely writes, "On January 22, 2005, over 4,000 anti-choice protesters descended on San Francisco bearing the message that abortion hurts women. Women who have personally experienced their own abortion as a tragic mistake deserve to find support. However, their individual experiences should not be used to limit the rights of all women. Let's open up the dialogue and hear even more stories- about our bodies, our beliefs, and ourselves. After the screening, we will invite women who have had abortions to speak up and tell their abortion story publicly. Women who were born after the Roe Decision grew up in a unique moment in history when a woman's right to control her body was established. How do we feel about that?" Read more

This program is sponsored by New College’s Center for Education and Social Action and EXHALE, a woman’s counseling organization.
